is it allowed to display adsense ads on smoking cessation forums it's not violating google adsense policy !

I've never heard that it wasn't allowed; tobacco products aren't allowed but stop-smoking products are advertised, so I don't know why not.

Although I agree with netmeg, there are people in Google who may see that differently. Just ask Sally Slitts.
Best to get it cleared with Google - and keep any email from them just in case something happens in future.
There shouldn't be a problem, but the goalposts do change at times.

Depends on the reviewer and whether or not your site gets tagged with certain keywords.
Even if you do get algorithmically banned you may still get manually unbanned. But it really depends on the reviewer and will take time, time of which you will earn no money from adsense.
Be careful to make sure entire forum is "anti-smoke". Just one single thread of a smoker vouching for certain tabacco product (that's less addicting) and you are done. Which I believe may be the case for those gradually quitting products.
Google will warn you to fix it, but it will be finding a needle in a sea of haysack. Unless you can go over 1 million threads to single out those ones within like 3 business days?, you're done.
Make your own judgement call.
I would personally slap it on, keep options open when unrealistic requirements come if they do come, then jump ship to another network.
Forum is always tricky and you will have to work hard to hand mod every post to ensure program compliance.
